A great stay, very large, clean, well run, friendly staff and good food. The new section near the sea, nice swimming pool. It still works ok but it is especially good for the line if we pay the good life. Sun all week, only downside I had the flu all week, but I could easily see the doctor m, has anti-biotic. Very good service.

Positive :

The rooms are spacious, very clean, I chatted with the gardeners, they are smiling, friendly, happy with their lot even though we know they do not earn very large salaries.

Dinner at the excellent Italian map but Cuban leaves to be desired.

Negative :

Rock on the beach and not enough chairs at the pool because the longer section picks up because it has more standard animation side.

Back from a week at the Blau Costa Verde - NoliPlus room (1st to 8th March). Consider that we are accustomed to 4 * or 4 * 1/2 in Mexico, Punta Cana or Cayo Coco in our comments: We still had a great week with family (49, 45, 20, 17 and 14 years ) because it was very beautiful and we enjoyed the beach in droves. However, we will never stay at the Blau Costa Verde and children are of the same opinion.

Positive :

The beach and sea life. Yes, there are some rocks in the water, but nothing to make a fuss. If you do snorkeling is really ideal. It's beautiful. Flowers and vegetation well maintained. Staff generally friendly and smiling. Ok cocktails and wine a little better than we have experienced elsewhere.

Negative :

We thought we'd get in a room Blau Costa Verde PLUS as suggested in several comments. NoliPlus the rooms are REALLY outdated. The bathroom would need to be redone in full force. Promised services were not provided. No dedicated pool, a bottle of rum in the room we saw in $ 2 shops. We are really disappointed with the room and will make a complaint to Nolitours and I'm not one to complain about often. The food is also common elsewhere in Cuba and the only restaurant that is clean, the Italian restaurant and it was all the miseries of the world to have a reservation. No meal with lobster unless you pay $ 25 more and was told that it was not good. Not enough chairs for everyone at the pool.

beach with lots of coral and rocks (very good for snorkeling as many varieties of fish), but unpleasant for those who just want to swim .. Bring shoes beaches! The friendly staff no more! Buffet basic but good Italian restaurant offering pizza. Several excursions available. Excursions with dolphins: Beware the tour is sold by saying that dolphins are in natural basins. These are tide pools, yes, but very small, dolphins are alone in the paddock. Disappointing for nature lovers, we felt very badly to have to encourage this kind of activity. This is the last time!

Positive :

Beautiful place, clean, ability to snorkel from the beach so very nice, simple but clean room

Reception / Service Timeout check in about 20 minutes but was the second in a row: one person was of record in this task. There are often only two people at the reception, or a person of record to money transfer and other, everything else. I asked 4 times (2 by telephone and in person 2) to receive a drinking glass in the room and change the batteries in the remote control right from the beginning of the journey it took 3 days to receive glasses and cells were not changed. Strangely, the problem I had safe is set in 30 minutes with a technician after a call to reception: to believe that the reception prioritizes requests. The toilet seat was broken on Saturday night and it was repaired on Monday in PM. However I received as compensation from the hotel a bottle of rum, which was appreciated but note together. Requests to fill the fridge through the maid made quickly. Transport to the room by golf cart available for the outward and return unused. Room located in building 46 on the 2nd floor. Buildings of sections 26-28, 36-37 and 46-48 have 3 floors and sections 16 to 19, closer to the pool have two more floors. These are newly built. The building is far from the main buildings: This section is quiet and calm, as requested. View of some trees. Fine cement sidewalks connecting the buildings together. Bedroom with king bed with firm mattresses with bathroom with shower only glass. Large wardrobe with digital safe, umbrella and iron but no drawers to put our clothes. No problem with hot water. Efficient air conditioner with digital display and it is silent. Strong echo heard in the corridors and strong sounds of slamming doors. I heard some neighboring rooms, but it was not a major problem. Main swimming pool with swim-up bar deemed small and children's wading pool. Difficulty finding a place around it after 10am. Some Palapas and palm trees provide shady areas. More pool section with lovely private aquabar but very sunny. Both pools are well maintained. Palapas on it is stated that it is forbidden to reserve chairs: to believe that this law is not applied at all! Canvas chair vinyl digging and quickly becomes uncomfortable for the back. The four-star beach I visited different hotels, this is the most beautiful beach. White sand, little tree cover. Full Palapas in different rows for the choice of more shaded areas or exposed. Presence of rocks and corals in the sea need to move with care: however, the clear water allows you to see where you must walk. An orchestra is occasionally sing some songs but they are not pushy. No vendor on the beach. Beach cleaned daily and chairs collected. Attendant chairs to come bring the number of chairs required and cleaning them. Hard white resin chair becomes uncomfortable over time. Buffet Buffet lunch deemed fine with bar eggs / omelettes, bacon (not crispy enough!), Cereals, oatmeal, cold meats and cheeses and many juices and smoothies already prepared. Repetitive fruit very ripe pineapple crisp white (not mature enough!), Guava, papaya, bananas, honeydew melon, grapefruit. Absence of oranges, lemons and lime. Coffee very bland, like cappuccino prepared in bars. Buffet dinner and evening repetitive but hey: it is essentially the same everywhere: grilled fish, shrimp and meat, pasta bar, salad bar, fruits, some vegetables (peas and corn cane, beets, pickles , cucumber, grated squash ...), hamburger and hot dogs, some stews, rice. No presence of salad leaves, except shredded cabbage. Snack bar available 24 hours when you can order hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, fries appreciated. Restaurants Ai map only had access to two restaurants: Cuban (El Cangrego) and Italian (Il Ponticello). The Cuban restaurant is casual, with a single service (main dish) consisting of net Mahi Mahi with a light garlic sauce to taste. The other two services, either starter and dessert are composed of elements of the buffet (again!): I believe that the à la carte restaurant should be distinguished from the food buffet. Italian restaurant with a much better four services. Tomato cream cheese sprinkled covered: strange. Great beef dish with banana chips and different vegetables buffet (broccoli). Very good service and the waitresses were dynamic, smiling. Hotel activities I have not used the services of the page to pedalo, sailing, kayaking but they are free. Beach volleyball often offered popular. Activities around the main pool also available but I was not often around it. Evening activities: I have participated as a show and it was fun. Bars beach bar ran daily glass plastic and posted a sign: sorry, no cups: I had to recycle my plastic cup and envied people who have made their thermos! I did not like the drinks and often they were very sweet and often adaptations: Mojito with Seven-up and mint leaf, Gin tonic without tonic rather flat seven-up, Bananarama with banana liqueur rather than mashed potatoes, crushed ice and margarita without salt-free etc.. Even the bars of the main buildings sometimes lacked elements to prepare cocktails (eg tomato juice for bloody cesar). Similarly, there has been one or two days during a shortage of glasses, which brought the servers to serve beer in a glass of wine or a drink in a glass of cognac, which was fun! The beer was good, the white and red wine drinkable but nothing more. Service bartenders selective: they are insistent people or giving tips before others: a place where queuing for drinks could solve this frustration.

Positive :

Good value for money compared to other four star popular in other countries. Quiet comfortable room with air conditioning efficient Buffet repetitive but good quality food Beautiful beach with lots of Palapas Good Italian restaurant in the map section with more attractive private pool and swim-

Negative :

Lack of plastic cups at the beach bar Drinks too sweet and not very good. Service slow main reception small pool bartenders prioritizing people pushy or giving tips
